They both can be negative or positive answer

An equation has a defined answer. An inequality can have a range of answers. 2x=46 x must be 23. m<1 m can be from 0.999 repeating to -∞.

0.4Y+5=1

You solve an inequality in exactly the same was as you solve an equation, by doing the same thing to both sides. The only difference is if you multiply/divide by a negative number, when you have to turn the inequality around.

The boundary of an inequality is formed by the corresponding equation.

Solving inequalities and equations are the same because both have variables in the equation.

The boundary of an inequality is formed by the corresponding equation.

Although there are similarities, the solutions to a linear equation comprise all points on one line: a one-dimensional object. The solutions to a linear inequality comprise all points on one side [or the other] of a line: a two-dimensional object.

An equation is composed of mathematical statements, which can be arranged to result in a series of equations/inequalities which can be solved for each unknown.

They are not. An inequality cannot, by definition, be the same as an equation.

The line that includes whatever variables are included in the equation.

actually by using the line of equation !! the inequalities might be showed!! im nt suree its a guess!! it depends on ur grade but im pretty sure that it does make some sense

It is called an equation. Sometimes it is called an equality to differentiate from inequalities such as x > 10.
